This fast and furious collection of fractured fairy tales with a modern twist tells what happens when the Big Bad Wolf decides he (or she) doesn't want to be big or bad anymore! Old Granny Stinkyfeet is just trying to tell the kiddies some stories but she's having trouble with the Wolf. He won't eat her like he's supposed to! Instead, he wants to be the good guy for a change, so he's off on a mission to become a hero - no matter how many people tell him it's impossible. The show utilizes audience participation.
Once Upon A Wolf was first performed by The Theatre At Monmouth in Monmouth, Maine on August 11, 1996.
